  • 11/10/16: With the 2016 fiscal year coming to a close, please consider a tax-deductible donation to the GHSWPA, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Every dollar donated goes toward providing water polo opportunities for high school athletes in the state of Georgia. Our current needs include funding towards referee recruitment and training, start-up resources needed for new clubs in order to sustainably grow the league, and additional resources needed to improve the athlete and parent experience. We appreciate your support and look forward to another successful year in 2017!

  • 11/8/16: The announcement for Referee of the Year is late but not overlooked and certainly not unimportant. We want to first express our appreciation to all of our Referees for their dedication to the sport, to the League and to our athletes. Without their selfless commitment to us we could not function.

    This year our coaches have selected two candidates deserving of special recognition: Sean Fitzgerald and Tim Watson. Sean and Tim exemplify our highest aspirations for competence, fairness and knowledge of the game. On behalf of the Board and our Coaches it is with our deepest thankfulness that we extend congratulations to our honorees. We appreciate you and look forward to your assistance again next season and hopefully for years to come.

  • 10/25/16: The 2017 GHSWPA Spring Meeting will be on Saturday, February 25th, at North Springs High School, at 10:00a. Coaches and Team Reps for the 2017 season should plan on attending. An agenda will be sent via email prior to the meeting.
